Hey, thank you for visiting! My name is Nara and I’m the founder of Modified Nutrition Health Coach. I work with busy, overwhelmed women that struggle with weight-loss, depression, sleeplessness, and work/life balance. Working together we will modify your life with an objective to help you to achieve your life, wellness, and fitness goals long-term. So now that I’ve told you how I can help support you, let me tell you more about yourself.
I’m a Dietitian/Nutritionist with a bachelor’s degree in Science Nutrition and Dietetics, and I’m also a certified Health Coach and Breastfeeding Coach. Currently, I reside in Texas with my husband, 3 amazing kids, mother, and brother.
I’ve been in the medical field since 2000, and a practicing Nutritionist since 2008. Initially, I began studying Family Planning and Mid-Wifery, but a passion for Health, Wellness, and Fitness hit me like a ton of bricks soon after. Let me tell you why. Like so many of us, we plunge ourselves into our families, kids, parents, careers, and everything else up under the moon. I did it all! Cooked, baked, made candles, self-taught myself to do nails and spa services, started a non-profits organization, and was OCD.
Most meals were very large, five-course, high carb, and mimicked the meals we were raised on as children. Then, the weight began to increase, energy levels were all over the place, and I had a sweet tooth that could put everyone to shame. In trying to keep up and maintain all those things, all relationships in my life suffered to some degree. There was no school/work/life balance. Busy, proudful, overwhelmed mom/student/wife/entrepreneur is what I was. Weight gain, depression, constipation, a fibroid, Pulmonary Embolism, and lack of self-care were the results.
Once I realized what was truly happening, I then started to practice what I preached and put my life into perspective. I had to revisit who I was, what I wanted, and what direction I needed to go in. My health and family were my main priorities, but I had to get myself in order first. As I started to heal myself by changing the way I ate, elimination dieting, exercising, meditating, and practicing the real meaning of self-care, I evolved into my true self. Whole foods, fitness, mindfulness, and self-love allowed me to introduce myself to myself and life began. I was awakened. As my journey matures, living a holistic lifestyle is the driving force for living a fun, healthy, and fulfilling life. I still value all my gifts and endeavors, but I’ve learned that there’s a time, place, and purpose for everything. I also learned a valuable word “No.” So, now that you’ve read my journey to wellness, let me help you through your journey.
My holistic health program will help identify your struggles and together we will break down all your barriers. I will guide you through your life and nutrition cycle to living a blissful life long-term. I offer several different packages that are available to guide you every step of the way, from jump-starting your journey to long-lasting changes. My pride and joy 6-Month Program “Modify My Life,” emphasizes the importance of bringing balance in all areas of your life to achieve optimal health, relationships, diet, fitness, and balance in your social and spiritual life. To support you in your journey and the ever-growing demand for flexibility, I also provide Health Coaching Services virtually and locally. So now you’re thinking, why should you choose me as your Holistic Health Coach? Allow me to break it down for you:
Registered Dietitians are professionals that are qualified to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice on health statuses; after reviewing one’s health histories and Medical findings. RD’s review and offer plans to help prevent, maintain, and treat those issues based on health goals, morbidities, and therapeutic needs. Health coaches look at all areas of your life cycle, to help you feel your best in all aspects of your daily wellness. We exam your relationships, career, spirituality, exercise, and nutrition from a holistic approach to optimal health and wellness, and happiness. We work together to achieve these areas of harmony; counting calories isn’t the main focus.
I offer you both, as a Degreed Nutritionist and Health Coach.
We’ll work together to eliminate work stress, food cravings, lack of energy and sleep habits, and much more! I customize the program to fit you and your desires. The goal is to optimize your total wellness, and life balance to improve and maintain what’s most important…YOU!
During my training at Integrative Nutrition (IIN), I studied over 100 Dietary Theories, L0ifestyle Management Techniques, Preventative and Self-Healing. The main Motto I follow is “One man’s food, is another man’s poison.” That means that what may work for one person, may not work for you.
TOGETHER, WE WILL EXAM THESE LIFE-CHANGING CONCEPTS:
Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
Primary Food™: It’s easy to overlook all the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
Integrative Nutrition™ Plate: The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded by lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity, and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!
So today is the day! It’s time to invest in myself, not a get quick fix and that’s not worthy of your time and that will continue to disappoint you. Stop the same ole’ cycle that’s not working long term.
